"I enjoyed the incorporation of Community Service-Learning courses. These courses allowed me to work with community partners and apply what I was learning in class to a real-life setting. [...] These courses enriched my understanding of course material while allowing me to give back to the Waterloo community, which is an experience I'm very grateful for."
